A while ago I purchased a 73463 Autavia, in stunning condition, - by far the best condition Heuer I own however there was one thing that was wrong- it was cased as model 73663.
Taking condition of all parts of the watch into consideration and where it came from I was happy that it could have been one of the anomalies that I have read about with Heuer watches.
There has been, and still is on Ebay another one, same thing cased as a 73663 but is a 73463.the serial number is only 60 away from mine and neither the ebay nor my watch have any military markings unlike the one in the OTD guide.
It all adds a little weight to my thoughts being correct with regards to this model, especially with the serial numbers so close
The ebay link if anyone is interested :-
And a shot of my example.
